Sore eye

I have a 10yr old tame scaly breasted lorikeet who has woken up this morning with one eye she keeps scratching it's becoming swollen and i'd like to know what to do for her. It's never happened before and she's always been a healthy little bird.

Bird scratching eye

It could be something as simple as something in it's eye that will wash out when it bathes, but if it persists you will need to take the bird in for an in person exam to determine what it is.

Please use this Find an Avian Vet link to find an avian vet for your bird so it can be examined to determine what is wrong and what the potential treatment might be.
